More Than Bruises: Stories of Abuse and Healing

Upcoming Shows…

After the show, (my friend) and I just stood there looking at each other, sort of in shock and awe. We went out for a drink and talked about life, love, and the abuse we both have endured. It’s kind of crazy when you look at the amount of shit we have both survived. And you’d never know it. You only see the face that conquered them. Thank you for everything you do @havenmt and thank you @vergetheater for bringing this darkness to light.

I sat with a friend Thursday morning who’s going through things similar to these characters and I know seeing (More Than Bruises) first would’ve given me practical assistance in helping her.

This show hits viscerally at many levels.

About

More Than Bruises shares the stories of women from the Gallatin Valley. This original verbatim play weaves together their stories of abuse and healing into a play that challenges us to truly listen and invites us to come together as a community. 

The play was created solely from interviews with survivors and aims to provide a space for survivors of domestic violence to share their stories with each other and with the larger community. By co-sponsoring this powerful show, HAVEN and Verge Theater aim to raise awareness and stimulate dialogue about domestic violence, as well as to foster communities of support, large and small, for victims and survivors.

Please be mindful that this play contains descriptions of physical, sexual, and psychological violence, and may not be suitable for all viewers.

THIS SHOW IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC BUT SEATING IS LIMITED; PLEASE RESERVE YOUR SEATS TODAY.

This project was made possible by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Montana arts Council.

Hear more about the process of all that it took to get this play off the ground… and why it was crucial to do so. Thanks, Jackie Yamanaka and Yellowstone Public Radio, for taking the time to talk about this important issue!
